SECTION 3: OVERALL ANALYSIS:
The college was established in 1965 with only 165 students. Today it has more than 4500 students studying on the campus which makes the college legitimately proud of its growth.
The college has strengthened the regular academic programmes of Undergraduate and Postgraduate level by introducing self-financing course like BCA. Computer Application a vocational course under UGC programme is also being run by the College. IGNOU study centre has also been set up in the college under distant education programme. The College has recently received sanction from National Council of Teacher Education to start 'Bachelor of Physical Education' course.
The college has constraints in designing the course curriculum as all this is determined and decided by the Himachal Pradesh University, Shimla. The college authorities, however, follow the course curriculum in letter and spirit.
The teaching methodology continues to be dominated by lecture method. The system of evaluation is under the control of Himachal Pradesh University, Shimla which conducts the examinations, declares the results and also evolve diploma and degree. The staff in general is highly qualified as more than 80% of them hold the degree of M.Phil and/or Ph.D.
The college has established three Computer labs of its own but presently is catering only to the students of BCA, vocational subject etc. It has yet to start its services in the library, college office and development of teaching aids/packages/learning CDs
It was heartening to see that some of the college teachers are actively involved in research activity in spite of limited infrastructural facilities. There is no scope for any kind of consultancy by the college as there is neither an industry nor any professional programmes in and around the district of the Hamirpur. The college, however, time and again has contributed in the promotion of extension work by NSS/NCC units through various programmes like AIDS Awareness, Literacy programmes, Blood Donation Camps etc. The financial support made by the P.T.A. towards construction activity and wages of part time adhoc staff members is laudable.
The performance of the college in the sports activities is excellent. Its achievements at University/State/National level are appreciable. Some of the students of the college have made them proud through their achievements at the national level. It has obtained the University championship last year. The students of this college have also performed exceedingly well in the cultural events like youth festival.
In nutshell, the college is striving hard in providing undergraduate and postgraduate education in consonance with its aim and objectives. They have also started looking in quality improvement in education.
Periodical interactions between teachers of different faculties have to be arranged to identify issues of mutual interest and local importance.
The college may constitute subject sub-committees to recommend the changes in the course curriculum so that these could be forwarded to the Himachal University, Shimla for consideration.
It should approach the Agriculture and Horticulture departments for starting short term courses, like fruit and vegetable preservation, farm machinery and tools repairs, etc. as per local needs as this is need of the region which has a strong agrarian base.
Setting up of a language laboratory shall prove to be much helpful for developing proficiency in languages.
College may plan for organizing coaching classes to make the students to face the competitive examinations comfortably.
The teaching departments should participate in programmes like COSIP/COHSSIP/COSIST with the assistance of UGC.
Social work need not be confined to NSS volunteers alone. Teachers and students may be encouraged to participate in socially relevant projects on an ongoing basis.
The college may provide facilities to make the staff members in the office as computer literate.
The college may approach the Sports Authority of India for financing the college by way of better playgrounds and for the construction of a multipurpose gymnasium hall. The help of the University Grants Commission may also be tapped. Further, the coaches for the different games need to be provided.
The library system needs to be upgraded by adding more books to meet the growing requirements. The library should be connected to other libraries through the internet. The library also should start using the computer for cataloguing and other library services. The college should subscribe to standard journals and periodicals for its library. Book Bank scheme be introduced to serve the students.
Grievance Redressal Mechanism Cell with representations from parents, teachers, non-teaching staff and students may be established.
Formalisation of activities of the alumni association will be a boon to contemplate plans for progress and development of the college.
Employment Cell and Placement Cell should be made more useful to the students.
The college will do well in formulating feed back and evaluation from the stakeholders. Course/faculty evaluation by students will provide excellent inputs for the faculty to fine tune curriculum and skills. Similar feed back from alumni and peer institutions will provide quality curriculum.
The college is advised to establish some linkages with institutes of higher learning within the state as well as outside the state. There is a need to sensitise research culture where it has yet to take off. The faculty members should approach the different agencies to pursue the research and also to take up minor/major research projects.
It is suggested that the college takes up the pending construction works.
Support facilities in Biosciences like Animal House, Botanical Garden and Museum needs to be strengthened.
The Peer Team is of the opinion that this exercise will be useful to the institution in initiating the quality enhancement strategies for further growth, development and in its march towards excellence.
